Race notes:
Where was Kyle Larson?

Chase salvaged a nice 4th place finish, after having some issues throughout the race including some lost positions on pit road and contact with Kyle Busch

Kyle Busch just got run over a few times throughout the day. It looked like he would have a good finish until last lap when he lost control and spun out.

Aj Allmendinger finished 33rd after getting stuck in the gravel on the last lap.

Christopher Bell salvaged a great top 5 after being a non factor and a rough day including a loss of power steering, being one lap down, and narrowly avoiding a spinning Austin Cindric

Austin Cindric with a top ten after a mid race spin would put him off the pace.

Bowman had a great run at the end, solid top ten all day long, and made the best of the day.

Erik Jones, another nice top ten finish after a rough day. Looked great for most of the day until he lost power putting him a lap down. Just a great effort.

And the pick a lane: Is it too early to call that the youth movement is here to stay?
